[Chapter 6]

1969, November 4th

Harlem, New York

There was a newborn, first name Sean, last name Combs

Two years old, his father was shot in the dome

Mama all alone

She loved her husband but she wouldn't raise a clone

So she worked hard, three jobs on her own

Bought herself a home, away from the street life

Gave her little boy Sean's future a re-write

Something he'd appreciate when he was grown

Yeah, see he was one of the lucky ones

But as a kid he'd always puff out his chest when he's angry

That's where he got the name Puffy from

Young, black, with a drive that was unmatched

Got into Howard but his mind wasn't one-tracked

He threw himself in every grind that was untapped

Throwing dances, limousine company

Young entrepreneur, an enterprising one at that

Got a chance to intern at Uptown

So he'd take the train to NY, come back

Go to class but that didn't last

[*"Real Love" by Mary J. Blige plays*]

He dropped out, back to NY - home at last

Got with Andre Harell to pursue his dream

You see his, +Real Love+ was the music scene

He couldn't wait for no degree, he was too extreme

See he came up quick at that internship

That his friend Heavy D hooked him up wit

'89 at 19, he would fade 'em all

And got promoted to the VP of A&R

Became the youngest exec. in the industry

And would oversee a group named Jodeci

See back then, R&B had a sweet look

But Puff wanted something shocking to the masses

Hoodies, Tims, Puff gave 'em a street look

No cheap blazers and champagne glasses

Uh, and to the top they'd, rise

Remixing songs with a Hip hop feeling

Then he'd do the same thing with Mary J., Blige

And took the "Real Love" drums from "Top Billin'"

Y'know, that {Milk is chillin} and then the {Giz is chillin}

And what more can I say?? {Top billin'}

[*"Real Love (Remix)" by Mary J. Blige plays*]

Fusing R&B with more rap

And redefining the remix format

Clear signs of his marketing mind

Targeting both demographics at the same time, uh

And wit Jocedi and Mary as the co-sponsors

He would spark the whole hip-hop soul genre

[*"I Love You Baby" by Black Rob plays]

...Back to the wind

To think the year before he was trapped in a gym

Nine dead bodies - everyone pointing at him

Cause his little event was packed to the brim

...Massively oversold

They stampeded the gates

Bodies got crushed like grapes

And he was the promoter so

When the blame came, he had to hold his own

The media would run amuck

Called him heartless, strung him up

It took a year but still he made it thru the darkness

And back at Uptown he was comin up

But these thoughts kept comin up {Baaaaaad Boooooy}

Pf him runnin his own company

And whether it was Puff's ego

Or Harrell's jealousy, he fired him in '93

Down but not for the count

Met Clive, struck a deal, got his label off the ground

Bad Boy Records, it was time to get busy

And the first artists up was Craig Mack then {BIGGIE}

[*"One More Chance (Stay With Me Remix)" by Notorious B.I.G. plays*]

Uh, and the young Brooklynite wouldn't let us down

Right out the Unsigned Hype demo pile

Is where he found him, called him, before all the stardom

"Excuse me, can I speak to..." {BIGGIE}

A terror since the public school era

But soon as they would pair up, they flared up

Now shout out to Craig Mack, he had a hot track

But everyone knew the franchise was {BIGGIE}

Uh, a diamond in the rough, Puff polished it

Plus brought him hits

You see he always had a formu-la for moo-la

And how to make more sooner, uh-huh yeah..

{B-BIGGIE} {c'mon...}

[*sped-up samples of B.I.G.'s "Big Poppa" then Isley Brothers' "Between the Sheets"

Along with mixed loops of "It's All About the Benjamins" plays*]

...Pushin him to record smoother

Tracks like "One More Chance," "Big Poppa"

Dammit, they sure blew up

Then the East Coast/West Coast war rumors, brewed up

Uh, still he was breaking singer after singer

...Rap star after rap star

...And all thru the 90s'

Sean 'Puffy' Combs had the game in a half-guard

...Then came the sad part

Shots rang out, four of 'em hit Pac

No one thought that it would go that far

Then hip hop suffers another +B.I.G.+ loss

Devastated but still dedicated

Commemorating his friend that never made it

He got behind the mic, "I'll Be Missing You"

And '97 he was in everyone's living room

Showing the world how to stack dough up

Crossover, infiltrate pop culture {uh-huh}

Haters didn't wanna give him his credit

Like 200 million's something to gloss over {uh-uh}

Listen, this isn't about lyricism

I told y'all this is The Hustlers' Edition {that's right}

And the boy went from rookie

To a paper fortune - no Chinese cookie, damn {eh eh, eh eh}

[*second part of "It's All About the Benjamins,"

Which samples Jackson 5's "It's Great to Be Here" plays*]

And he was diversifying the brand

Sean John clothing, Making the Band {C'mon}

Justin's, plus his own fragrance

Hustlin, even his valet got famous, for nothin

Came a long way from a young teen

Back up dancing in videos, {that's right} rockin a Gumby

Vote or Die, mobilizing youth thru his stardom

But you know what it is, +Mo' Money, Mo' Problems+...

["Smoke Rings" by Sam Cooke plays]


Um-hm, I mean he definitely had some bumps on the road along the way

{OHHH, you can puff your cares awaaaaaaaay..}

Legal troubles, highly publicized court dates

{Hmmmmmm...} I mean...whatever

[*back to "It's Great to Be Here" sample*]

Making hits, high profile relationships

Raking in the kinda cash you beat cases wit

Media mogul, American dream

Whatever the roadblock, can't stop, won't stop
